  1. Diversiones Beboys in Chapala at Venustiano Carranza #8 has the vehicle that you are looking for. Call Oswald 331-465-1292 he speaks English.
  2. bus from Guadalajara to Phoenix

    Dennis Clark has not contacted me even though I sent him contact details in a PM. Does anyone know him and can advise him to look at his PMs?

  4. Vehicle foto infraccion

    jrod. May I ask whereabouts in Guadalajara you went to sort out the problem?
  5. There were some differences in the required details when I renewed my car tax in Chapala this week. The procedure is still the same - a queue of people and the sitting on the chairs when you get inside the building - but the information that I had to give when my turn came at the counter was not what has occurred before. Previously, you just handed over your old car tax document and then they issued you a new one. This year they wanted to see a passport or resident card, they wanted to know my curp number, email address, telephone number, cross streets where I lived and, would you believe, the color of our house (Caracteristicas del Domicillo). Then they printed out and gave me a 'CEDULA DE IDENTIFICATION FISCAL' paper with all these details on it. Strange!!??!! The cost this year of renewing is $522.00 (less $52.00 if you renew early) and $40.00 contribution to the Cruz Roja.. They open at 08:30 am. on Av. Degollado.
  6. Seeking a hip surgeon

    I would not recommend Dr. Gonzalez.
  7. Superlake

    Went into SL today for my usual bottles of Lipton Citrus Green Tea to find that it has just gone up from $7.50 to $9.50 a bottle - a price increase of over 26%; that's quite a jump in price! Maybe not associated with the absence of Pancho, but there again who knows?
  8. Chapala Tianguis... Where to Park?

    Very easy to park at Soriana and just walk across at the lights.
  9. solar pool heater and cover

    Even the 'so-called-good' solar rings from the US only seem to last 2 or 3 years at the most and for the price they do not represent good value. You can make your own 'solar rings' - although in this case they are square - just go to YouTube and see how easily it is done and at a low cost.
  10. Moving / Shipping Costs

    Further to my previous comments, I also went with Lake Chapala Moving (Winston) who gave me the volume costs but didn't mention that weight also came into the equation and so when the lorry was being loaded, everything was weighed as it went on board and we ended up having to pay an additional and unexpected $1000 for the extra weight that was over the allowance. I was not a happy hector.
  11. Moving / Shipping Costs

    Not only do they charge by weight, they also charge by volume. Like RV mentioned, I would only recommend bringing personal belongings and I include many clothes amongst that. If you intend to travel down by car, then just fetch what you can fit in the car.
  12. Couldn't think of anyone better than Dr. Hector Valenzuela, the man is simply amazing in his care for his patients.
  13. On-going Knee Issues

    I would not recommend Dr. Gonzalez. PM me if you want details.
  14. Paying 2017 Car Tax

    This morning I was at the office in Chapala to renew my car tax for 2017 and was hit with having to pay for 3 parking tickets in Guadalajara at $359 each. The parking violations in Guad happened during May 2016 at which time we were in the USA and our car was locked in the carport in a gated complex with the battery disconnected. There was no option but to pay the fines along with the car tax but boy, did it rankle? Would love to know if anyone successfully challenged a car parking violation in Guadalajara?
  15. Knee replacement

    Sent you a PM.
